I disagree with the apple grower from Pennsylvania on the labor issue. I think there are enough people out of work in this country that she should not have a problem hiring non-immigrant labor. There are plenty of teens out there who need a job. Why doesn't she promote to them? Have we ever considered that the way we approach the world is what we are teaching our children? Have we really grown too lazy and proud to think that some jobs are beneath us when our families are struggling so hard? I have more faith in our youth than that...I think given the chance they would gladly pick apples for a living, and they could do the job well. There should be a great pride in being involved with the food chain, a very vital source of our existence, and I think the importance of this should be stressed more and more. On this I agree with her.
Just asking to give the kids a chance
